COP28 demo & workshops (Leeds)

9th December 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:30 pm

Please come to Imagine Leeds on 9th December for a look at what real climate action could be like. This event will be following the rally for Climate Justice that will happen at 11am the same day in Briggate https://www.facebook.com/events/681549844181893
From 12.30pm onwards on Sat 9th December, we will be welcoming everyone to come and enjoy some refreshments, see displays of children’s artwork and exhibitions of local projects and campaigns, and browse stalls by climate action and social justice groups in Yorkshire.
There will be short talks, films and discussions on climate justice issues, and workshops to get stuck into, on topics such as how to stop Drax power station burning trees, spotting greenwash and misinformation about jobs creation, how we campaign for real climate jobs, how to have persuasive conversations about climate change, global and local health impacts of climate change etc.
Participants expected so far include:
Unite4Energy for All – Energy for All campaign with local Unite Community branches
Better Buses for Yorkshire – with We Own it and local Unite Community branches
Medact
Stop Burning Trees Coalition
Eco-Educators
Just Transition Wakefield
Wakefield NEU (National Education Union)
Yorks and Humber Climate Justice Coalition
Friends of the Earth groups
and more…….
PLEASE let the Yorks & Humber Climate Justice Coalition know if you want to bring a stall, offer a workshop or propose a speaker for a short talk.
If you are bringing a stall or display, or need to set up your area for a workshop, you will be able to access the building the evening/late afternoon before, or on the day from 10am. Contact: yorks-humber-climate-justice-coalition@outlook.com
Please note Imagine Leeds is on the 7th floor of an office block near the bottom of Albion Street (on your right as you face downhill). You will be able to walk straight in through the revolving door – there will be a concierge at the desk, but you just come straight up in the lift. If you don’t like lifts there is also a staircase. The building is wheelchair accessible, including toilets.
